Cinema Classic Series: Rashomon

Japan, 1950. 88 min
Dir: Akira Kurasowa

Free and open to the public.

Film and Video Studies is excited to present a new screening series in collaboration with its course FAVS 225 – History of World Cinema.  The Cinema Classic Series is a rare opportunity to see classic film on the big screen!

A samurai is murdered and his wife raped.  Through a series of flashbacks Kurasowa weaves a narrative both true and false which begs the question from The Guardian “Truth, history, memory and the past … are these just fictions?”
